Here’s a video review of the Air France business class cabin.  Daraius isn’t the best with cameras. 🙂

Emily Jablon:  Soon enough it was time to board our flight and we made our way to the gate.  The Air France business class cabin looked very new, and the seats were wide and comfortable.

Each seat had hangers on it so that you could immediately hang your jacket instead of waiting for the flight attendants.  There were also pillows and blankets.

The Seats

There were 2 seats by the windows, but the middle section had 3 seats.

The flight attendants distributed the amenity kits and offered us water, orange juice or champagne.

The amenity kit had the usual goodies and included a shoe bag for your shoes.

The seats were comfortable and there was a reading light on the side.  The light was very dim, so it didn’t help while reading.

There was a small TV in front of us.  It wasn’t very big, but it didn’t matter since we both hardly watch TV on flights and went to sleep.

The controls for the TV were in the side of our seat.

I planned on sleeping the entire seven hour flight, so after takeoff I put my seat into a bed.  Daraius stayed up and had dinner.

I had the Foie Gras to start described as “Champagne foie gras terrine, poached shrimp with mayonnaise cream sauce, coconut and fig chutney on cranberry-raisin bread”

It was okay.  I had much better foie gras in French Polynesia.

To save time, since this was a night flight, I was served the cheese and orange chocolate cake at the same time as my appetizer.

Dessert & Cheese

I had the scallops with lobster bisque sauce for my main course.  It wasn’t a memorable meal, but I wasn’t in the mood for a long memorable meal.  I just wanted to go to sleep!

I was worried when I saw the seat sign which suggests that the bed doesn’t recline 180 degrees.

The bed didn’t recline a complete 180 degrees, but was almost flat.

The bed was almost flat and much more comfortable than the Lufthansa or American Airlines business class seats where I slide off!

The pilot kept on coming out of the cockpit and chatting with everyone in the cabin.  At one point, I saw him escort a woman who was looking for the toilet.

I went to sleep so I didn’t have breakfast.  We got up just before landing and it was still dark outside.

Overall, we were very happy with our Air France flight.  It was a great way to start our honeymoon!
